A Product of Its Time
4 August 2013 | by (Directly Above The Center of The Earth) – See all my reviews

Personally, I feel this movie was a product of its time, and not too shabbily done, at that, for something meant for TV. It's definitely worth seeing for those into the "history of computer movies".

I cannot add much to the reviews already given except to correct one misconception given earlier: Thomas J. Ryan wrote the book The Adolescence of P-1 in the year 1977.

The TV movie Hide and Seek was released in 1984.

D. F. Jones wrote the book Collossus in 1966. I'd say it was difficult for Mr. Ryan to have influenced Mr. Jones - rather it went the other way round, if at all.

The movie Collossus: The Forbin Project was released in 1970, so it was hard for this movie to have been influenced by the release of Hide and Seek, either.

There were other "mad computer" novels well before either of these: check the works of C.M. Kornbluth, Cordwainer Smith, and H. Beam Piper, just to name a very few...
